Thinking about getting a gun.It has to be easy to handle for a lady.Any suggestions welcomed.
Desert Eagle .50AE
Get a small .32 caliber. Will fit in your purse. Easy to handle, light, but good for protection.
You can’t kill an elk with it, but who cares?
Hammerless Smith and Wesson in .38 Special. If you are going to carry get it in titanium, if you are going to keep it for home defense get it in steel.
My second choice is the Glock in 9mm in the subcompact size.
That looks a little big but hell if it works:)Thanks Crazieman I knew I could count on you:)
One of the neatest little guns I have seen recently is the Taurus model 94 in .22LR. It sells in the $300 plus range.
It is a 9 shot revolver.
That sounds good I’ll look them up.Think this is going to be one of my Christmas presents.
If you have to ask that question, a small revolver is the likely answer.
Ruger SR9c (9mm) is compact and best for smaller hands.
Is the gun for:
1. Home defense
2. Vehicle defense
3. Concealed carry for self defense
Regarding the owner:
4. How strong
5. Any physical disabilities
6 Willing to practice sufficiently to achieve some degree of ability, or not
Perhaps most important, what are gun laws in state of residence.
.22, .25 and .32 are all small enough for the smallest of hands and could fit in a clutch. Get a semi-auto not a revolver.
For home or concealed carry? For home, a shotgun is hard to beat. For a woman too, a 20 ga or 28 ga is easy to handle. You can pick shot type that fits your situation. Shot that will work on coyotes or ducks like #4 or #2 is good if you don’t want it to keep going beyond a wall or two where there may be children in the house or nearby neighbors. If this is not an issue then buckshot may be better for you.
If you are going to concealed carry then you need to go to a gun range that rents guns and both of you try a variety of handguns. Buying one that fits and works for two different people will take some work. Try many before you buy.
Agree. Small wheel gun.
Can’t go wrong with a Barrett .50 Caliber.
They make for the best concealed carry gun. With a long, ‘Matrix’ style trench coat, there would be no stoppin’ ya!
Thanks yarddog,I am going to save everyone’s responses and look them up.
